Couples Counseling? Try Couples Yoga to Build Joy, Peace and Fitness in Philadelphia

Synergy By Jasmine teaches gentle yoga for couples, leads romantic couples retreats in various locations in the Metro Philadelphia area.

Philadelphia, PA, February 05, 2010
-- The benefits of couples yoga are that they can help you reconnect or find a new level of intimacy. They are revitalizing way to spend time with your beloved. The result can be a deeper connection with the building of more trust. As each participant learns to let go and trust, the couple begins to explore spiritual levels of the practice together. They build on the energy of each other and create a better understanding of their relationship as well as the practice of yoga.

Couples that are interested in Thai Massage, Massage for Couples, Yoga Retreats, Yoga and Meditation Classes, Yoga and Spa vacations or just couples just looking for relaxing and tender ways to connect will benefit from these classes in Philadelphia.

The yoga poses are suitable for all body types and fitness levels. The poses are playful, sometimes, childlike, buoyant and occasionally strengthening and sometimes restorative. The classes can be emotionally intimate and will open partner up to a level of vulnerability they may not have experienced before. For this reason, SBJ does not recommend this class as a first date. The classes are more suited for new or established couples.

The classes are divided up into three segments. The first segment will be a time for couples and partners to ground, center and get into a quiet, meditative space while synchronizing their breath and energy with their partner while do some slow and simple yoga poses.

The second part of the class is more active and many of the poses will be standing and balancing and the partners will build up a bit more heat and movement in the body.

The third part of the class the couple will be instructed and shown how to do beginner, basic relaxing massage techniques on the hands, feet, arms and legs.  Often people are so relaxed that they fall asleep during this part of the yoga class which is a healthy sign that the person is enjoying the massage and is relaxed.

After the yoga class, you might feel vulnerable, meditative or tranquil. In order to continue to remain in this calm, connected state, SBJ recommends that you plan on having a quiet, silent, relaxing evening afterwards, avoiding TV, loud, fast music, working at the office, computers and even keeping your cell phone turned off if you can.

2011: Year of the Puma? (For Cougars-in-Training)

San Rafael, CA, February 05, 2011 -- Contact: Tom Andrews, 415/507-9962

“2009 was declared Year of the Cougar by Newsweek,” says Rich Gosse, author of The Cougar Imperative: Why MidLife Women MUST Choose Younger Men. “But what about cougars-in-training, known as pumas? More and more women under 40 are choosing younger men, especially celebrities:

- Selena Gomez, 18, and Justin Bieber, 16

- Ashley Greene, 23, and Joe Jonas, 21

- Nicki Minaj, 26, and Drake, 24

- Carey Mulligan, 25, and Shia LeBeouf, 24

- Rihanna, 22, and Chris Brown 21 (no longer together)

- Lauren Conrad, 24, and Jason Wahler, 23

- Kelly Osbourne, 26, and Luke Worral, 21 (no longer together)

- Taylor Swift, 21, and Taylor Lautner, 18 (no longer together)

- Jessica Szohr, 25, and Ed Westwick, 23

“That’s why we have created the world’s first Puma Party, for single women under 40 who prefer younger men,” says Mr. Gosse, “on Friday, February 18, 2011, 8pm-Midnight, at Neptune’s Restaurant at Pier 39, San Francisco CA 94133.

“The worldwide cougar craze is NOT limited to middle-aged women, who are forced to date younger men out of DEMOGRAPHIC NECESSITY (the shortage of men their age who are willing to date middle-aged women), Pumas date younger men out of CHOICE, despite the fact that there are an unlimited number of older, more prosperous men who compete for their favors. We hope our Puma Party will be the launching pad for 2011 becoming The Year of the Puma.”

RICH GOSSE is the author The Cougar Imperative: Why MidLife Women MUST Choose Younger Men and many other books about dating, including You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to America, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find (“This is a great book!” Oprah Winfrey). His expert advice has been featured by ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Cosmopolitan, Business Week, Entrepreneur, Playboy, Playgirl, The London Times, The Australian, The New Zealand Herald, and hundreds of other newspapers, magazines, and TV/Radio shows. Mr. Gosse is available to the news media for interviews by calling 415-507-9962.

One Puma in attendance will be crowned Miss Bay Area Puma. She will win a free room at Hedonism II Resort & Spa at Negril Beach, Jamaica during International Cougar Week, March 27 – April 2, 2011. To be eligible she must be legally single, under age 40, available to the news media for interviews, and prefer younger men.

The Puma Party features complimentary appetizers, 8-9pm. $20 at the door includes DJ Dance Party, plus 6 hours free validated parking at the Pier 39 Parking Garage across the street. At approximately 10pm, one cougar will be crowned Miss Bay Area Puma, who will be available to the news media for interviews.

Neptune’s is a lovely restaurant at world-famous Pier 39, with a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and San Francisco Bay. It is a large venue, with plenty of space for dancing and flirting.

The Puma Party is sponsored by The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization, which sponsors Cougar Events worldwide. Adults of all ages are welcome. Anyone wishing more information about this event and many more cougar parties and cougar cruises may visit or call 415/507-9962. More information about Hedonism II is available at
